  • Has anyone ever seen this word used to mean anything other than tryst?

  • By gum, you're right. And now the barbell is even more lopsided...

  • I've always liked this word because it's the longest word in the language with just one vowel: I have this goofy image of the e in the middle as a bodybuilder lifting a massive barbell composed of the other letters.

  • It helps if you imagine that you're Archie Andrews when you say this.

  • I use this as a synonmym for "shirker," which is apparently not a terribly common usage. Huh.

  • To hesitate

  • The run-around, nonsense: "Don't give me any rannygazoo." P.G. Wodehouse era slang.

  • There's an connotation to this word of futile oppositionism; I'm not entirely sure I'd use it for most groupings of intellectuals.

    December 10, 2006

  • This, like sesquipedalian, is a word that describes itself, or so think I.

    December 10, 2006

  • No one's got this yet? Awesomeness!

    December 10, 2006

  • Derived from the pebbles used to vote in ancient Greece.

  • A fear of, among other things, Carcharodon carcharias.

  • Ragged tooth.
